Cleveland Plain Dealer Whining
700 jobs NASA jobs in the Cleveland area to be cut. But read this reaction by the Cleveland Plain Dealer. Nowhere does it discuss whether this is good or bad policy (I honestly don't know). Rather, it just talks about the harm to the local economy of the jobs cut.

Yes, cutting any individual pork project (which this might be, like I said I don't know) will hurt a local economy. But the money to fund that project must come from somewhere, and the debate is whether the jobs that are cost through federal taxes are worth the expenditures that are proposed to be slash.
